Hello all! i recently got a copy of windows 7 Home premium and i had to put it on a usb flash drive because my netbook does not have a disc tray anyhow when i got to the part where it says where do you want to install windows nothing is there and it says "no drives were found, click load driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation." what do i do and where can i find a mass storage driver?

You'll need to go to whoever made the chipset in the laptop, and get USB drivers from there.

chris is the laptop hard drive seen in the bios and is the laptop sata chipset turned on?? in the windows setup have you gone into advance mode and see if it sees the drive where you have to partion it?? did the drive have non windows os on it before?? if it did you may have to use a disk tools to wipe the drive. with the missing driver you have to go to the vendor web page see if the netbook uses intel or anther mb chipset and download the driver. then use a program to make a new iso slipstrream. on the windows 7 dod you use the windows iso to usb tool?? and is this a new dvd or a torrent download a lot of the torrent downloads are fake. if you need a good download use ones from digital rivers.

The hard drive is seen in bios and yes it is turned on from what i can tell, it has windows xp on it at the moment but i forgot the password to it thus why i am installing windows 7... it's a emachines em250 model don't know if that helps any it doe's use intel. I'm not sure what you are asking about when you said "on the windows 7 dod you use the windows iso to usb tool??" i got the copy off amazon it is a real copy i called up microsoft support a few days ago they said too put my copy of windows 7 into another computer and copy all the files in it and put it on to a usb and install it that way... and what is "digital rivers"?
